Changes Tags on some tracks to Duplicate that of other tracks

  1. I normally use iTunes on my computer as my music library application, however
    I do use WMP for DVDs and Video. I do have my entire library available in
    WMP however.

    So yesterday evening I went on iTunes and noticed that a number of albums
    had what appeared to be duplicate tracks while other tracks in those same
    albums were missing. However, I noticed that the tracks had different
    duration times. When I played them I found that the duplicate tracks, while
    having the same artist, title, and album information, where in fact not the
    same song and in fact that the missing songs were one of the duplicates. It
    is as though something copied all of the tag information from one song in the
    album and replaced the tags of another song in the same album with those same

    I spent some time poking through the attributes of these files and found
    that they were changed at two points yesterday afternoon, both while I was
    watching a DVD on WMP and while iTunes was closed.

    Has anyone heard of a bug in WMP that would cause something like this?
